Lobbying and policy outreach are the third essential aspect of CSPPS’ work. In addition to networking, capacity-building, and peer-to-peer learning support, CSPPS also provides its members with lobbying and advocacy platforms both within and outside of the IDPS policy realm.
Indeed, within the International Dialogue, CSPPS is in regular contact with and invited to meetings, events, and conferences by the g7+, INCAF, and the IDPS Secretariat. CSPPS engages with its IDPS partners and supports when required its civil society members to attend key strategic events, to make sure the voice and perspective of local CSOs is always heard and represented in IDPS and related policy processes.
Outside of the IDPS realm, CSPPS explores and fosters new partnerships with civil society platforms, INGOS, governments, and technical and financial partners. Platform members are often solicited, encouraged and given the opportunity to participate and engage in a meaningful way in dialogue processes and to influence policy arenas through coordinated advocacy.
